For National Poetry Day 2009, WORD! at the Y Theatre in Leicester (in partnership with PoetCasting) hosted a bumper night of poetry featuring headline acts Deborah Stevenson and Oscar Frank, over 20 floor spots and 160 more poets reading on iPod Shuffles. The event not only marked National Poetry Day on the theme of ‘Heroes and Heroines’, but it also marked Black History Season, World Mental Health Month and the official first birthday of WORD! at The Y Theatre.
In this entry Faye Roberts from Milton Keynes, Brian Wood from North Yorkshire, American Kevin Wallace and local Michelle Hubbard each perform one poem from the floor.
